Tool changers for collaborative robots
Cobots are so flexible because they can use different tools and change them quickly and easily. Thanks to automatic tool changers, also known as tool changers, cobots have become even more flexible. These tool changers allow a cobot to use multiple tools within a line or application. For example, in an assembly application, the cobot would first put all the parts in the right place and then attach them with a screwdriver. The cobot not only becomes more flexible, but also more productive and has a faster payback.
WiredWorkers uses TripleA Robotics' automatic tool changers. These work with a special pass-through module, providing the perfect cable routing and easy connection between the tool and the cobot. The locking mechanism is mechanically designed and does not rely on compressed air. This is in contrast to traditional automatic tool changers.
